SOUTH BOSTON—It's like the Oscars of affordable housing! "The now-completed Phase One of the Old Colony redevelopment in South Boston was highlighted by the Affordable Housing Finance magazine after readers named it the 'Best Urban Project.' ... The first phase of the multi-phase redevelopment involved the demolition of 164 existing units and the construction of 116 housing units in mid-rise residential buildings, along with four groups of townhouses, which hold close to 34 one- to five-bedroom units."

MASS.-WIDE—Home seizures by lenders decreased in August: "But not all the news was good.

Petitions have increased every month so far this year, except in July when starts dropped 16.8 percent year-over-year." [Biz Journal]

FENWAY—Apple's map for Boston's famed ballpark and beer garden is a head-scratcher: "Fenway Park pops up on Apple's Maps with perfect clarity, cradled by Lansdowne Street and Yawkey Way. But in the overhead view of the ballpark itself, there is something strange. It appears to be carpeted in white. Peculiar towers rise near home plate and in the outfield." [Globe]
